12 Handicap


 


Main 2018 Goal: Iron improvement. Need iron consistency with dispersion and holding greens. Current un-fitted clubs flight can't hold greens very well (probably not enough spin anymore as they are older clubs). Pretty sporadic on dispersion. Distance is there no problem. Would love a fitted set to start getting the ball closer for more birdie opportunities. Having to scramble too much, with low GIR due to my iron problems. My handicap would drop dramatically if I improve this part of my game.

To consistently shoot in the lower 90's to start. I plan on playing 2 - 3 times per month not including 5 - 6 best ball tournaments

 

I am an average golfer so I feel I can give a "real-world" review of these clubs from a high-handcapper's perspective.

4. The cap got to where it is with a strong finish to the season about 5 months ago. The goal for the first half of the year is to get back to that level of play. The overall goal for the season it to drop another couple of strokes to the point where shooting 80 is a bad round. Also aiming for another win on the Alberta Golf Tour.
